Wednesday: A stray shower or two

High pressure begins its retreat on Wednesday with the potential for a stray shower or two, especially during the morning as a small disturbance in the atmosphere moves overhead. Unfortunately, most everyone will stay dry, but don’t lose hope. More widespread rain is in the forecast for the weekend.

We’ll see a high in the low 90s, but that humidity will make it feel even worse. You may also notice that the breeze will be slightly calmer on Wednesday than it has been over the past few days.

Thursday and Friday: Isolated showers

As we hit Thursday and Friday, an influx of tropical moisture will begin and a few isolated showers may pop up. Highs will still be in the low 90s, but those areas that see a quick shower will get a brief break from the heat.

Father’s Day weekend

The bulk of tropical moisture will arrive for the weekend producing scattered showers and storms across the coastal bend. This is great news since we haven’t seen more than a half of an inch of rainfall since May 20th. However, any rain may also put a damper on your Father’s Day plans.

While there is a slight chance of seeing this tropical moisture organize into a tropical cyclone, the odds are not in its favor, and development is not expected. Stay tuned to Action 10 over the next few days as this weather forecast becomes more defined.
